A Sense of Balance:
The Sculpture of Stoney Lamar
October 24, 2014 — January 18, 2015
This exhibition of the sculpture of Stoney Lamar presents work from 1987 to the present. Uninspired by traditional turned wood vessel forms Stoney Lamar embarked on a personal exploration of the lathe and other tools of turners and woodworkers. This spirit of experimentation has firmly placed his work in the avant-garde of the wood turning world. Not only was he one of the first to use multi-axial turning, but eventually he added steel, color and distressed surface treatments.

Color, An Artist's Tale: Paintings by Virmarie DePoyster
October 28, 2014 — February 15, 2015
Writers use words to set a mood, describe and illustrate. As a visual artist, color is my silent narrative. Without words, the slightest color I observe holds information, molds my human experience and translates into my work.
